Restore Balance & Renew Your Spirit in Northern Spain: August 20-27, 2023
We are currently sold out. If you would like to be put on our waiting list, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Restore balance and renew your mind, body, & spirit by connecting with like-minded individuals while experiencing the quiet, charming villages, forests, lush farmland and beaches of Northern Spain.
Taking a “time-out” for restoration and renewal is a true gift to the self – as well as to everyone around you. Awakening to your inner needs and opening your heart to new insights and possibilities results from doing deep reset practices. In an atmosphere of peaceful beauty and with the attentive help of our staff, you will have the opportunity to experience transforming mindful lessons and practices that will help interrupt the habit patterns that can pull you away from your natural balance. Our time of restoring balance & renewing the spirit will include talks, personal reflection in the peaceful surrounding of Old Spain, journaling, gentle movement, mindful meditation, and connecting with like-minded kindred souls. We will use the days activities as metaphors to develop a greater sense of gratitude, awareness, awe, and joy.
Asturias, Spain’s best kept secret and home to Hotel Fuentes de Lucia, is the beautiful location of our adventure. This dynamic retreat, which combines gentle movement practices, comfortable hiking (sauntering), and quiet time to absorb the unique experience, is staffed by experienced facilitators from the fields of medicine, psychology, and mindfulness training, local guides, and extremely helpful and gracious hosts. There’s no better place to breathe in pure mountain air and stretch your limbs than in the middle of the majestic beauty of dramatic peaks, deep gorges, and crystal-clear rivers.
We will begin each day with an early morning (6:30am) reflective practice while sipping coffee and watching the sunrise – Hotel Fuentes de Lucia has a 270 degree view of the lovely mountain range from sunrise to sunset. Then, after a hearty breakfast served in the main dining room, the days activities will include lessons presented by your teachers, mindful meditation practices, guided walks along beautiful mountain trails, and wonderful food. We’ll savor local Asturian cuisine, sample aromatic cheeses, and sip the traditional beverage, Sidra Asturiana, a cider made from locally grown apples. On a few of our days together we will trek through scenic gorges and alongside babbling brooks; dine in local taverns; explore 10th-century churches, and spent some quiet time under Spain’s oldest yew, El Tiexo, planted more than a 1000 years ago in a sacred meadow.
In the evening we will have the opportunity to meet for some social time, debrief the day’s events, and connect with our group as we rejuvenate our minds, bodies, and souls before enjoying lovely home-cooked dinners prepared by the owners of Fuentes de Lucia. No matter what your level of fitness or mindfulness experience, you are welcome on this active holiday experience!
